Edward Bradley and Richard Bradley - 1935 Aston Martin Ulster

Donington Park Historic Festival 2017

It was my first time at the Donington Historic Festival, and I was fortunate enough to be granted Media Accreditation – this opens up access to various parts of the paddock and circuit and can help in capturing shots that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to get.

Upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised at the large variety of cars present, from firm favourites such as the BMW CSL and Ford GT40, to vintage Alfa Romeo’s, there was something for everyone. With only attending for one day, I had to make the most of my time so spent most of it running from one vantage point to another trying to capture a little of everything that was going on.

If you get chance, I thoroughly recommend making the trip to Donington Park for the Historic Festival, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

Please now take a moment to enjoy some of my photographs from the Donington Park Historic Festival 2017.
